this is truly one of the most unique and kind of gross weapons of political intrigue i've ever heard of i mean how many men in georgia politics could possibly fall into the spy trap you know if he actually did implement this scheme and it actually worked then machiavelli and von bismarck could have a thing or two to learn from president saakashvili but that's just my opinion. exactly half past the hour if you're just joining us a very warm welcome this is r.t. coming to you live from the new center here in moscow we're looking back at the last seven days top stories it's the weekly the annual world economic forum in
davos is in switzerland was shaken up by a speech this week by the british prime minister david cameron and as a tease andrew farmer reports the long anticipated address on the u.k.'s future relations with the e.u. has ruffled a few feathers at home as well. british prime minister david cameron has threatened to redraw the map of europe his pledge to hold a referendum on whether the u.k. should remain in the e.u. if they can says win the next election in twenty fifteen basically he wants more powers returned from brussels to westminster and will try to renegotiate britain's terms of membership but he has warned that he is not successful then the u.k. would probably vote to head towards the exit i was his long awaited european speech indicted he plays many of those euro skeptics within his tory party there are many dieties u.k. business leaders for example say that even talking about an exit at this stage will create uncertainty and could scare away potential investors germany's chancellor
angela merkel has said that perhaps a compromise is needed but other e.u. members are less sympathetic than mark says that the e.u. is not a self-service buffet where members can cherry pick the legislation that happens speaking to said the e.u. would simply become a mess so while david cameron appears to solve any internal squabbles within his own party particularly appeasing those euro skeptics it also appears that he is driving a wedge between britain and other e.u. member states andrew farmer. london. european parliament member and deputy leader of the u.k. independence party paul nuttall says the prime minister is once again just trying to delay solving the long standing issue. the point is that it's going to be nigh on impossible we've had. the president of the european council you've had a man well but also you've heard schultz who's the president of the european
parliament you've had the prime minister you the list can go on of all of these people who are saying that britain cannot cherry pick this is an attempt by cameron to kick this issue with the long grass we're talking about a referendum five years down the line and it's all dependent on whether he wins the next general election or not and we know that if you look at the polls today it's showing quite clearly that campbell struggled to win the election so i do think that this is an attempt to kick into the long grass and quite frankly this man has lied before and referendums he gave as a cast out and see that we were that we would have a vote at friends and on our membership of lisbon he went back on that referendum pledge so i don't think you can be trusted on this issue. on r.t. dot com at the moment in search of a better life one jobless frenchman offers himself for sale at a mock replica v.m.s. and website you can log on to find out if the plans a dividends.
plus devastating floods of wreaked havoc on australia's east coast forcing authorities to declare a disaster just weeks after a killer heat wave i don't mind to find out more on that. barack obama has been sworn into office this week officially beginning his second term as the us president during his inauguration speech on capitol hill he once again pledged to promote world peace by supporting democracy but many still wonder if he'll be any better at keeping his promises second time around. he's escalated the wars in afghanistan he's escalated the drone attacks around the world so i'm certainly skeptical possibly now that he's in his second term he will stop and think about things but from what i've seen there's been no real activity towards drawing down our military you know as an american i have trouble keeping track of where our troops are these days where we're intervening and so for me to try and
predict where it's happening not to mention that there are secret operations going on around the world. do we have our troops in over one hundred countries and we assess we intervene in the election processes in other places so there's not really any real. activity to do things other than militarily i'm actually worried that other countries you know they see how we do things and they may. go you know go towards the opposite of freedom the opposite of democracy and ten by civil liberties group in the u.s. to shed light on what the f.b.i. is using to track american citizens has literally drawn a blank that's off to the government agency complied with the requests put sent out hundreds of almost fully blacked out documents the editor of twenty four seven news j.d. to kill it says that the secrecy surrounding government surveillance gives authorities the ultimate power. the fact is the enormous power the government now has to
surveil the population unfortunately when they black out the memos that we don't know what the policies are the supreme court has revised the rules for surveillance and we have to trust them we have to take their word for it that they make their body by the supreme court's decisions so we don't know what policies the f.b.i. has allocated itself wouldn't we don't know how they're lying under their surveillance techniques open and free society the f.b.i. has to tell us what its procedures and techniques are simply that we can argue about them and then we have the opportunity to challenge them meant that maybe the courts say sure they're ok but that's only after they're challenged in court and either discussed openly if all we have to go on is the f.b.i. saying trust us that doesn't give us a very much a we actually don't let them and from america's relentless big brother we move back to the world's financial power plants after the break as promised we bring you an exclusive interview with russia's animal tycoon only get that a pass cannot be bought with more news for the team and about tough enough and.

this isn't your first time in davos and the focus this year is definitely on trying to get the world economy out of its current crisis mode why do you think one of the key speakers was a me term advantage he was obviously showcasing of russia as an investment opportunity what do you think of the many hurdles at the moment that are not allowing foreign investors to flock to russia because maybe a better opportunity for us it's important to improve you know you know own situation and provides them was. you know more predictable climate. to gives them. more transparent picture of what the practice should be changed and
i think that was the main reason why the government officials said there was a double is just to show that they have a strong commitment to not to do this what do you think is the first thing that needs to be done and what do you think the government should focus on to really address them for stores or should change management or center back because what you said and as a whole country all around the world tried to curb problem which happened into cells and they turned we have completely opposite direction where with central bank which creates more problems for the gross and try to support it well speaking of the central bank when you had the opportunity to speak during the prime minister medvedev session the only thing you said was that russia has two great banks d.t.b. and spare bank and that is certainly not enough can you elaborate on not can you tell me why you think it's not enough for
a country like russia and what do you think needs to be done in this respect russia not just moscow russia not just resource sector you know russia is a waste to put you into you know from what you are still to some pieces from a good culture to a. of course. we should have been a better financial system but no one could grow it's enough to mushroom it's not enough to have a rain. by natural system it's a commitment towards a country commitment you know state institutions sent to bankers and people you know to grow proper infrastructure for capital markets for that market we already have a navy you. are tuna juice and begin of night is when we try to build capital is not even democracy we know one no one has interest in democracy we have lost and in the we're trying to build capital is world capital as well as market economy without people who understand the know how to run an enterprise in
a private enterprise and with hail and this failure costs us almost to sort of jaded now would try to develop the country was the market who tried to bring innovation we tried to bring. in the end user put unit to. not to benefit out all w two without comparing what cost of capital in russia and was a country which would want to compete with germany was united states was a career and we have a course of capital in there which four times higher than the same cost of capital and us three times higher in korea and of course it's you know it's not you know markets unitarians this is what we should do and it's not foreign investment it's not so you know for you know for foreign media or i know it's our whole war and we haven't started yet well the cost of capital in many ways is tied to inflation so that's one of the issues that should be tackled would you agree with that you know
it's rush in the flesh and his nominates or base it's everyone knows even center back analysts in the shoulders and would not talk about you know inflation. in the basic. you know the problem in. it's about money supply there is a very basic failure you know we don't have institutions would grow where we don't have middle class we don't have. in the foreign investment which which group which has provided money supplied so much on this sentiment and sentiment should not suit and comfortable chairs in the teachin as a tourist structural problem there is inflation which could because lie a massive actually bodes in the course what's going on we know the result inflation cost of capital in the cost of that and this is something we should be changed with it and how do you think it should be changed and how do you think these central banks approach could be changed what is the main problem what is the main reason for it being the way it is the main problem is that people if you look at c.v.s.
no one was and so in private banking. they run you know almost market the corner we still have a great in the state prisons was to have a lot of an efficiency but it's ridiculous we need to help people who experience a problem we need to hope people who knows what's customer relation to customer relations and and solve this issue. it will it could run forever you are very big on china. and there's been a lot of talk this time around in davos that africa is going to be the next china you have assets there would you agree with that assessment you know what prevents them from being the next hot spot for growth not go ment's not stability i'm. not competent. to cation. you know as a result of work work work for us just a dream. where you mentioned the w t o and obviously that's one of the hot topics
for russian general we have a lot of expectations but you know nobody really understands how our economy's going to benefit from the accession how do you think it's going to turn around. it will not change monetary policy will not benefit for sure that's an opportunity you need to use as a butcher but again if cost of capital and that in korea you know most three times less than in the russia who would in the west in comportment sound when you're all region instead of a not to buy enterprise in korea you have to have a proper supply base productive workforce and no barrier to bring this complement back to russia is this is the reality and it's not a charity but what exactly what we're saying industrial people you know to our government first to prepare economy try to recognize what sector would we develop try to organize support for the sector and certainly not jump into this chart you
know in the ocean well do you think that this a lot of available capital is one of the reasons why russia's economy is not diversifying away from its dependence on the energy exports at the rate that perhaps some would hope it's one of the one problems we need to have not just. diversification regional do is to occasion only for in the regions in russia benefit of development for the last ten years. main problem is a human perception still people would not look at the business as opportunity to not to sole you know many problems they're still believes of the government should not do some miracle to provide solution which is a huge mistake and of course no one wants to support the business. on the hard issues we talk about and i'm sure for small montreux we'll do it it just comes we
talk about two infrastructure we talk about investment for a structure you know we try to look at the development in the interest potations sector and interest sector in that we try to develop a system. to my yearly increase in terrorists will pay for development of utilities it's ridiculous you mentioned image and the perception that's really also been one of the main issues here everybody talking about the image of russia not quite being up to par not really quite being up to what the reality of doing business in russia is but yet according to many surveys less than thirty percent of russians are actually interested in having their own businesses that's a very low number compared to pretty much any developed country why do you think that is and do you think it's a matter of entrepreneurialism having you know a bad reputation or having the wrong image or do you think there are deeper underlying problems with
a city just so those are comfort recognizer so it's hard work and you need to commit to almost. free time not to not to do it we need to help them to grow or we need to reduce barrier not to start a business as i said banking system mind to oppose access to resources infrastructure and through support of the regional girl money and actually a fair budget system now we can so that all money from a budget to moscow and so they're distributed and they should be skilled incentive for regional governors smiler not to develop services because then it would be quite worst so there is a big divide between the center moscow and the regions we all know about that and that's also been one of the issues discussed here before on a global level this divide between the rich and the poor the haves and the have nots how big of an issue do you think it is for russia unless we will not move our
capital. in the region like equatorial group and i was abuse could you know it will it will become even worse in that section to create wrong signal. for the labor market we have tracked so many people from the republic which actually. the great more burden for moscow would say you know some region moscow region some. infrastructure and the actually crude now will create more tension and this is completely unnecessary the only way to move capital somewhere not so close to moscow is a decided now because it's a mistake and tried to develop the same way like brazil did play because our star due to that would be very beneficial it was sold out of it looks like china is really driving the demand in the metals and mining sector at the moment do you
think that's going to be the trend going forward. because industrial freeze is a new mall a multitude of companies or programs there was a cycle in china development one zero very far as growth rate in term so for consumption all these are scum order to us and say create a misperception in the world it's all. in the we need to rationalize all to put not to meet demand not to produce in the waste and not to produce and i tell him so resources for this talk and this is the reality is what the less investment in mining sector. in the future and in the west should be very cautious you know to choose what project to fall or if there will be less investment in the mining sector what other sectors are you working on yourself in the world look at the russian develop in the fracturing financial sector and construction in the financial sector what are you interested in it's a future story. ok thank you very much thank you.

wing t.v. host glenn beck is going to build his own utopia beck plans to put together a massive social experiment building his own city which will be totally independent from the evil grasp of government and the outside world where residents will have to learn how to survive on their own make their own things and grow their own food
the future city called independence usa will be based on libertarian principles with hints of iran flavor there will be no handouts and no help for the self-sufficiency minded residents but back may need some help himself because building the city could cost about two billion dollars the thing is that commentators about politics like glenn beck and horse truly have a very easy job it is easy to point out what is wrong with society but it is another thing entirely to try to change it and i want to salute clint beck for actually doing something and putting his money where his ideological mouth is now why would i want to live in the i know rand paradise of independence usa under the rule of lord back no no i wouldn't taking marching orders from a tiny portly man known for crying on camera doesn't suit me but if you're a hardcore libertarian here is your chance to make all of your dreams come true but that's just my opinion.
